The day after...

...and I'm still amused by the reactions to yesterday's defeat of treason.

It was all so predictable: Jorge Bush blamed Congress for not giving all his amigos (plus assorted terrorists and riff-raff from around the world) a free pass into the country. Senators who pushed for the so-called "Grand Compromise" blamed talk radio, hate-filled Americans (can four out of five of us really be "hate-filled?" I think not) and Jorge Bush. They went on to whine about getting "hate mail" (as if it hasn't happened to them before) and cited single examples out of the millions of letters, emails, faxes and phone calls they received.

What it comes down to is this: for the first time in many years, the citizens rose up to let the Senate know they are not, as they have long believed, all-knowing, all-wise and all-powerful. It was a shock.

Apparently, no one has said "no" to Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy, Dianne "send tax money to my husband" Feinstein, Lindsey "good ol' boy" Graham and others among this elite band in a long, long time.

Bush, on the other hand, should be used to hearing the word "no."

One can only hope this is the beginning of a trend.

What worries me, however, is that Bush, Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the traitors in Washington are never gracious in defeat. They are, without exception, vengeful, rabid wild animals when crossed.

They will get payback for this humiliation, and don't you forget it. Unlike normal children, when they throw tantrums they can do serious damage.

Jorge will simply continue to ignore and refuse to enforce the law, as he so often does, and blame us for his failures and malfeasance.

The slime in Congress will hang more restrictive laws on us and burn up our money at an ever-increasing pace. As long as they hold office, they have ways of punishing their opponents.

And, worst of all, Jose Compean, Ignacio Ramos and Gil Hernandez will remain in prison. Jorge put them there, and you can be damn sure that evil bastard will continue to sulk because real Americans are more concerned about them than we are about the masses of lawbreakers with whom he feels kinship.

The public's task is not over, and will not be over until Compean, Ramos and Hernandez are freed.

Not "pardoned," by the way. The only "crime" they committed was enforcing our laws against illegals and drug smugglers. As innocent men railroaded by Bush and his loyal pit bulls, they deserve nothing less than immediate release from prison, compensation for the time and money they have lost and (if they wish) a full, unconditional return to their jobs.

Yesterday was a big win for the forces of decency. But it is in no way the end of the battle. We cannot rest until the venal, self-righteous traitors in Washington are removed from power and punished for their many crimes.

I love watching them spin the facts when they don't get their way. That they can insult those who disagree that way and still get elected is depressing. But I think, one way or another, the office is often bought.
